The Philadelphia Transit Equity Coalition invites you to our second annual Transit Equity Day celebration. Join us for a two hour town hall-style discussion on how we can create a more equitable transportation system in Philadelphia. There will be structured discussion and birthday cake.
We want to hear from you! Bring your stories and ideas for how to improve SEPTA and the rest of Philadelphia’s transportation system. We invite you to share and listen throughout a series of small group and large group discussions. Elected officials will be present to hear from you.
February 22 marks the 181st birthday of Octavius Catto, who worked on the desegregation of Philadelphia’s horse-drawn trolleys. Octavius Catto's actions affirmed that everyone has a right to public transit.
Throughout the event, Scribe Video Center will be present to record your stories and hopes about transit as part of an ongoing oral history project.
1:00 - 1:20: Gallery walk and introductions. Where did you come from, and how did you get here?
1:20 - 2:10: Facilitated small group discussion. What does Transit Equity mean to you? How do you want to change transportation in Philadelphia?
2:15 - 3:00: Full group discussion and report backs. Then we eat cake!
